Shares Some Design Trends

Michael P is known for his attention to architectural detail with a touch of whimsical style. Recently, Design Bureau magazine selected him as one of the “Top 100 Interior Designers.” Inspired by his world travels, these trends are all about creating a dramatic impact, whether it be a dark ceiling or statement tile.

1. Walnut - Medium wood tones like Walnut feel fresh after years of espresso and black finishes.


2. Statement  Tile - As a focal point in your home, statement tile creates a unique and artistic element in any room.


3. Rustic Glam - A juxtaposition of weathered pieces and modern glitz gives your earthy décor a bit of sparkle. 


4. Local Art - Western New  York has such a vibrant art scene, keep art local and support our city’s creativity.


5. Blue - If Picasso can have a blue period so can interior design. Blue reigns supreme this year, with rich and saturated colors like navy and cobalt.


6. Dark Ceilings - Move over white ceilings, hello dark and moody…


7. NATURAL STONE - Rough and natural, stacked stone adds tranquility both indoors and out.


8. FUll Wall Window Treatment - Nothing says pure elegance better than full-length window treatments!
